BOT's representative Catherine Nettleton and TFSR President Hsu Jan-yau inked the MoU at a luncheon held on Tuesday in Taipei, with Wellington Koo, chairman of Taiwan's Financial Supervisory Commission, and George Hollingbery, the U.K.'s Minister for Trade Policy at the Department for International Trade, as witnesses.
According to the TFSR, the MoU is the first such agreement signed between a private Taiwanese association and an official organization representing a foreign country for the mutual enhancement and development of financial technology.
Kits will be collected this month and then TFSR
will ship tens of thousands of high-quality refurbished tools, sewing machines and Starter Kits to partners in Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana, Zambia, Sierra Leone and Malawi to give people the skills to get them out of poverty and into work.
All of my own garden tools (and most recently a sewing machine - another project-inwaiting) are from their fabulous workshop in Crickhowell and I was rather proud to be made a Patron of TFSR

Cymru aims to improve the lives of African artisans & families by providing them with quality refurbished recycled hand tools & training and the organisation is funded by selling high quality refurbished garden tools at their workshop in Crickhowell.
